Draft sample. Almost black in colour with moderate carbonation. Aromas are of cocoa powder, milk chocolate, and sweetish pale malts. Flavors are a blend of sweet chocolate, espresso, chalk and bready malts. Medium bodied with a clean finish. A very well executed stout.

Narnad (1416) - Wonder Lake, Illinois, USA - MAR 9, 2014
Pours a deep black color with the perfect tan head with a good 1/4 inch, dense head. Aroma has a very fresh chocolate and light coffee nose with a deep roasted presence and some mild crisp yeasty notes. Flavor has a deep roasted malt note balanced by a smooth, chocolate that is not overly sweet. A good earthy hops presences is there to add a little extra bitterness to the roasted coffee bitterness thatís present. Body is prefect! Low carbonation, modest body with a light dryness really gives the perfect stout palate. Overall one of the best stouts on the market and a perfect representation of whatís to expect in the style.

Roasted malt aroma. Taste is roasted malt, maybe slight coffee and cocoa. Full flavored and a very enjoyable stout. Not sweet or boozy, just full flavored maltyness with some coffee flavors. Real nice stout. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Light brown, black. Light head. Nose is slight bitterness very yeasty, with roasted Chocolate undertones. Nice taste. You donít really taste the abv at all. Roasted chocolate, coffee is faint. Solid mouthfeel. Itís an okay stout
